Let $\struct {S, \preccurlyeq}$ be an ordered set.

Let $a, b \in S$.


The intervals between $a$ and $b$ are defined as follows:


Open Interval

The open interval between $a$ and $b$ is the set:

$\openint a b := a^\succ \cap b^\prec = \set {s \in S: \paren {a \prec s} \land \paren {s \prec b} }$

where:

$a^\succ$ denotes the strict upper closure of $a$
$b^\prec$ denotes the strict lower closure of $b$.


Left Half-Open Interval

The left half-open interval between $a$ and $b$ is the set:

$\hointl a b := a^\succ \cap b^\preccurlyeq = \set {s \in S: \paren {a \prec s} \land \paren {s \preccurlyeq b} }$

where:

$a^\succ$ denotes the strict upper closure of $a$
$b^\preccurlyeq$ denotes the lower closure of $b$.


Right Half-Open Interval

The right half-open interval between $a$ and $b$ is the set:

$\hointr a b := a^\succcurlyeq \cap b^\prec = \set {s \in S: \paren {a \preccurlyeq s} \land \paren {s \prec b} }$

where:

$a^\succcurlyeq$ denotes the upper closure of $a$
$b^\prec$ denotes the strict lower closure of $b$.


Closed Interval

The closed interval between $a$ and $b$ is the set:

$\closedint a b := a^\succcurlyeq \cap b^\preccurlyeq = \set {s \in S: \paren {a \preccurlyeq s} \land \paren {s \preccurlyeq b} }$

where:

$a^\succcurlyeq$ denotes the upper closure of $a$
$b^\preccurlyeq$ denotes the lower closure of $b$.
